Getting games to work on Raspberry Pi
December 29, 2012 Leave a comment
For a while, I was unable to get any games to play on raspberry pi, and whenever I tried to get to where you actually were playing them, the games and everything would freeze up. I found a simple solution to that issue. Just add this little line of code to the bottom of /boot/config.txt and it should fix it.
I kept having problems with playing descent and quake 3 arena due to this issue, but that little patch was all that it took to fix it.
edit: Alternatively you can use the line below and just paste it onto the command line and press enter, and it does it all for you.
sudo sh -c “echo ‘gpu_mem=128’ >> /boot/config.txt”
